This afternoon I flew to the Texas, and right now I’m sitting on Melanie’s couch and watching The Bachelorette. We’re discussing how one trend this season is to assign Emily the role of tour guide in the various cities they visit, and while it’s a little awkward, it’s also pretty delightful to hear her explain various cultural landmarks before she and her date settle in to dine in some sort of local cave and then watch fireworks on a nearby barge. ALL IS WELL WITH THE WORLD.
Also, Mel just picked up on the fact that John told Emily that she and his mom would be “two peas in a pot,” and there’s a sense of completeness in my life that was missing before.
However comma I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Emily and Jef’s puppet show left a legacy of awkward that may be unprecedented in the Bachelor / Bachelorette franchise. I just…well…wow. That was something else.
We had some excellent Mexican food tonight and even better conversation, and we have high hopes for more of the same. I’m excited about all the relaxing that’s going to keep us very busy. And I will do everything in my power to meet my personal relaxation goals.
See y’all in a couple of days!
